Bought SiliconDust HDHomeRun to build into a Windows 7 Media Centre... but first tried to check it out via my Mac. Mac users - forget it! The Mac software is lousy and simply doesn't work - and the forum users don't have any input that is worthwhile. Buy an elgato product for your Mac - they work, they are easy, they are cheap.
It works well in the Windows 7 Media centre - but you have to keep up to date with the software and firmware updates (W7 is, of course, beta - so a few issues are to be expected). Picture quality is great .. not quite as good as a top of the range PVR on a Pioneer 50" 1080 telly .. but almost! And integrated beautifully into the Media Centre interface.
Mac's = NO! Windows - OK!
